It has been quite some time since I have knit. Your designs inspire me to pick up my needles again and try some of these for Christmas. I especially like your tag line: Homemade is Special

I love this scarf but got to ask if I ch 82 and do a hdc in the 3Rd ch from hook wouldn't that make 80 sts across the row not 81. I'm confused thanks.

Hi +Unknown! Kristen is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. You do NOT count the ch 3 as a stitch, that will give you the count, just ignore the turning ch, it is simply a directional sign, like when you turn the corner while driving. In this pattern, it doesn't count as a stitch, it is simply a means to get to the next row. Hope this helps!
